:cry: I turned my computer around while it was on and all of a sudden, the monitor displayed windows sideways. I have tried to fix it going to control panel display and couldn't find anything there. Can someone help me fix this? I appreciate your help.

I have an additional problem. My taskbar is gone. It is so low that I can barely reach it with the mouse. I have gone to Windows Help and tried several things but I can't move it up or drag it up to where I can see it. This happened when my screen got distorted. Can someone help me please!! Thank you so much.:confused:

Some Graphics Drivers allow you to rotate your screen using <ctrl><alt><arrow_key>. Maybe your other problem will then be solved as well.

Are you sure the taskbar is gone, and your monitor hasn't been stretched? If it's so low, and you can't click on it, that could be the case. Can you right-click on your taskbar, even? There should be an option that says, "Lock the taskbar"

I was able to correct the direction of the images on the monitor but have not been able to raise the taskbar, it's still very low. I have tested with and without locking and it won't move to where I need it. I can right click on it, but only going by feel not that I can see anything down there, and most of the time I can't find what I'm looking for. I appreciate your help. Thanks again.:sad:

Anna Marie I too, stumbled onto this from Google. I have the same problem Monitor Screen displaying everything sideways. I tried the ALT+CTRL+arrow key combo but that just inches my viewing area whichever the arrow is pointing that I push.


Does anyone else have any other suggestions.? I have read alot about portrait/landscape monitor orientation. They all suggest pushing the orientation button. But not one of the sites has indicated where such a "button" would be.

Does anyone know if it is S/w or on the keyboard somewhere or some place I have not even thought of yet?

Thank you for any help. This has been going on since last Saturday 6/23

I had a similar issue with my display. My computer runs on the WindowVersion 2002 operating system. I resolved this issue by
1) right click on the desktop
2) Select Graphics Options
3) Rotation
4) Normal

Hope this helps anyone who runs into this problem.

This was brilliant - thanks a million. The Graphic option fixed my problem in one minute.

Do you have any idea why the screen turned sideways and wasted my precious evening so that I know what I did wrong and how to fixe it next time.
